Bagana volcano: news and activity updates
Bagana volcano (Bougainville Island, Papua New Guinea): active lava flow

NASA image of Bagana from 16 May 2012 showing an active steaming lava flow
A new NASA satellite image reveals a fresh lava flow on Bagana volcano's eastern flank. It is unknown when the eruption started, but comparison with older images implies that it must have begun some time between March 2011 and February 2012.
Bagana is of the most active volcanoes in Papua New Guinea, but extremely remote and there is no ground-based monitoring, which is why satellites provide the most reliable and timely means of monitoring.
